I Dreamed A Garden (poem)

Updated on February 22, 2013

I dreamed a garden filled with long ago

Where flowers bloomed in moments of the past

Still sweet the feelings from the scent they cast

So full the colors which I use to know


I saw the dew of meaning meant to last

The promise of tomorrow in their glow

What ways of wonder would a breeze bestow

To timeless treasures which then seemed so vast


I dreamed a garden filled with things now gone

Beyond the cruel and mean of current straits


I dreamed a garden filled with things now drawn

By things whose blindness evermore abates


Please take my hand and help me to dream on

For in my heart I know that garden waits

      This is so beautiful, Martin. I was pulled into the poem by the very first line. I've enjoyed all your poems that I've read, but this is one of my favorites.
